How to get Wordpress as landing page, after install of PhPBB #.1.x Forums?

I have followed tutorials here on many occasions, to install WordPress, PhPBB 3.1.x forums, etc.

I have just completed the install of PhPBB 3.1.x and find that it has become my landing page.

I orginally followed instructions from WordPress on modifying the htaccess file in order to make WordPress my landing page.

How do I restore WordPress as the landing page for my server/site.

What modifications to PhPBB 3.1.x and/or WordPress will be needed.

I fear that modifying the .htaccess file for WordPress alone will somehow make teh forum un-accessible

Any assistance would be greatly appreciated

It sounds as though you installed WordPress and PHPBB in the same directory. This will most likely not work properly at all. You will need to install phpbb in a subdirectory rather than over Wordpress.

hey , If you’re really new in the field you can install InstaBuilder 2.0 on wordpress
and build your pages with few clicks ( no coding needed)
